Free Movie for All at Stanley Theater

The Thorp American Legion Auxiliary Unit 118 and Stanley Theater will be hosting a

free showing of the movie Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero at the Stanley theater on

Pearl Harbor Day Saturday, December 7, at 1:30 pm.

This movie is based on the true story of a stray dog befriending a U.S. Army unit as they

fought Germans in France during WWI. America finally entered the Great War of

Europe in April 1917. Connecticut 1 st and 2 nd National Guard forces were mobilized then

combined to assemble a fully manned regiment of 1000 +, thus, forming the

102 nd Infantry. The 102nd was made a part of the 26 th (YANKEE) division of

Massachusetts which shipped overseas on the U.S.S. Minnesota.

“Stubby” ends up in France becoming a highly decorated canine as part of the U.S.

forces. Many believe “Stubby” to be the predecessor of today’s military and police
